Nanaimo MLA Leonard Krog says the seven month lockout at the Nanaimo Golf Club isn’t getting the attention it deserves.
A Go Fund Me page has been set up to support the workers, who have been walking the picket line since mid-April. One week into the campaign, donors have helped raise more than $3,700 towards the $10,000 goal.
Krog made a $100 donation on behalf of his constituents and says he fully supports the workers.
Krog says he believes the workers are being treated unfairly, and he says this is not how a decent employer treats their workers. He says the lockout has also seriously damaged the reputation of the Nanaimo Golf Club.
There are two weeks remaining in the Go Fund Me campaign, which is an effort to raise some extra money for the workers in time for Christmas.
